Russia's Quick Consideration of Nuclear Weapons is a Threat to Global Security

Russian President Vladimir Putin admitted earlier this month that he considered uncorking his nuclear arsenal last year amid the Crimea crisis. Yesterday, his ambassador to Denmark said Russia would aim nuclear missiles at Danish warships should they become outfitted with NATO's missile defense systems.

Together, the sum of both admissions by Russia amount to a clear threat to Global security of which both NATO and its allies, along with Russia's neighbors, should pay careful attention.

After Putin's admission of his quick consideration of arming Russian nuclear weapons amid the Crimea crisis, the World should have taken notice, but business continued as usual throughout Europe.

However, yesterday's warning from the Russian Ambassador to Denmark, Mikhail Vanin, that should Denmark allow radar capacity on some of its warships to the NATO defense shield, then Russia would aim nuclear missiles at Danish warships, is more than sufficient warning to Europe and the Globe, to warm up to the growing security threat and aggression posed by Putin's Russia.

While the defense missile shield Russia has protested against and is so dead set against its deployment over NATO members, is designed to protect NATO members from missile launches, the Russian Ambassador warned: "If that happens, Danish warships will be targets for Russian nuclear missiles," Reuters reported this morning.

Denmark has deemed the Russian threat "unacceptable". And NATO's spokeswoman Oana Lungescu, has reaffirmed the alliance's defense of all allies against any threats.

Romania faced Russian threats and pressure for deploying the defense shield and as NATO's top military commander, United States(US) Air Force General Philip Breedlove observed, "...Poland is now coming under great pressure and now anyone else who wants to join in to this defense capability will come under this diplomatic and political pressure."

Furthermore, in response to the Russian threats, British Foreign Minister Michael Fallon, visiting Romania rebutted: " Neither Romania nor Britain will be intimidated by threats to its alliance or its members...We shall stand against any possible future aggression."
